I can’t wait till I live in a home where I am allowed to paint the walls; somewhere there will be a chalk walk. Chalk paint obviously comes in black but Hudson Paint has a line of chalk paint in a variety of colors so those of you who are weary of black, don’t worry! You can also make your own chalk paint by mixing 1 cup of flat-finish latex paint (whichever color you’d like) with 2 tablespoons of un-sanded tile grout. Once the paint has dried smooth the area with 150-grit sandpaper and wipe off the dust. Optional: Rub the side of a piece of chalk over the whole surface then whip away the residue with a very lightly damp sponge. Directions courtesy of Martha Stewart, of course.
